Dr. Roy Talbert: The Journal of Peter Horry
On July 16, the Horry County Museum in Conway and The AVX Foundation present a lecture by Dr. Roy Talbert, editor of The Journal of Peter Horry. Horry (1744–1815), a Georgetown rice planter, was one of the state’s early chroniclers of the War of Independence. Talbert’s work offers the modern reader detailed insights into the daily life, agricultural practices, and culture of South Carolina during its early statehood. The program is free and begins at 1 p.m. in the museum’s McCown Auditorium.
